Apps from British Wireless for the Blind Fund
(18 August 2021 12:00 am)
The British Wireless for the Blind Fund has two smart apps that you might find useful.
British Wireless for the Blind Fund (BWBF) and The Talking News Federation (TNF) have joined forces to bring together local Talking Newspapers from across the UK. The Talking Newspaper app is available for both Android and Apple IOS and gives you access to your local talking newspaper, just select your region and then the local paper of interest. Sit back and enjoy!
The new Speech Radio app is currently available for Android devices but should be available on Apple IOS later in the year. This voice-controlled Speech Radio app gives users access to more than 10,000 radio stations. If you don’t want to control all of the features and functions within the app with your voice, simply say “speech off”. The device’s standard TalkBack functionality will take over to turn off the command. In addition to speech interaction, a built-in gesture mode provides additional means of control when voice is not available.
